Topic: I am not a Lot Lizard Media Campaign
Guest: Kylla Leeburg ~ TAT Social Media Coordinator
The work of Trucker's Against Trafficking continues with a new media campaign that aims to end the tolerance of a vicious remark and attitude that has grown to be acceptable among truck drivers. The remark serves to further dehumanize victims that may actually need your help.
TAT was formed to educate, equip, empower and mobilize members of the trucking and travel plaza industry to combat domestic sex trafficking.
While TAT has made significant progress by changing the way truckers perceive sex trafficking , there remains the term that is widely used in the industry, many times by other women who are truck drivers or spouses to describe persons that frequent some truck parking areas selling sex services.
Join us to learn more about the TAT organization, their mission, their success stories, how you can recognize the signs of sex trafficking to report it and how you can help by changing the way you THINK and SPEAK on the topic.
Kylla Lanier is the Deputy Director and co-founder of Truckers Against Trafficking, a 501(c)3 organization that exists to educate, equip, empower and mobilize members of the trucking and travel plaza industry to combat domestic sex trafficking. She is responsible for implementation of vision, communications management, training and volunteer coordination, partnership development and national promotion of organization. She manages and coordinates coalition builds between members of the trucking industry, law enforcement and local anti-trafficking groups; speaks on human trafficking and how the trucking industry is proactive in preventing and combatting it at conferences, in print, on radio, television, film, press conferences, universities, churches, trucking shows and trucking industry meetings and makes operational decisions for TAT. Mrs. Lanier also handles social media for TAT including managing the Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and YouTube accounts.

Mrs. Lanier has been involved in the fight against human trafficking since 2007 when she helped initiate the state coalition against trafficking in Oklahoma. In addition to her human trafficking work, she has authored a book called My Life Crazy about her missionary experiences working with gangs in El Salvador in the mid-1990s. She was also named Broken Arrow Public Schools District Teacher of the Year in 2011.
Kylla Lanier, Deputy Director of Truckers Against Trafficking will join us as our special guest to discuss the continual efforts of the organization in their drive throughout the trucking industry to combat domestic sex trafficking.
Discussion will include their first-of-its-kind mobile exhibit, known as The Freedom Drivers Project which provides an insight look into human trafficking as well as offering educational information for trucking professionals and the general public as well.
We will also cover the recent story of a young lady kidnapped out of Iowa and was rescued after Conway Truckload driver, Kevin Kimmel "made the call" which also led to the arrest of her traffickers. The action taken by Mr. Kimmel was recognized on April 3, 2015 when Truckers Against Trafficking presented the driver with their 2015 Harriet Tubman Award.
Truckers Against Trafficking also received the Suzanne McDaniel Memorial Award for Public Awareness as part of the annual Congressional Victims’ Rights Caucus Awards on April 22 at the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington, D.C. Representatives from ATA, TCA, NATSO and OOIDA were in attendance.
Mrs. Lanier will share the organization's plan for an upcoming new training DVD, more in-depth educational and training portals and much more offered by the 501(c)3 organization.

Just as the Denham Amendment attempted, but failed, to prevent Fair wages for truckers in last years Highway Bill known as the FAST ACT, once again the large motor carriers (ATA) have managed to slip in the same exact provision into H.R. 4441, the Aviation Innovation, Reform, and Reauthorization Act, otherwise known as the FAA Reauthorization Bill.
The Act was introduced by the House of Representatives. The “AIRR” Act as it is called, is a bill designed to authorize aviation programs, but on pp 256-258, Title VI, Sec 611, labeled Federal Authority, the attack on driver wages was slipped in by these members of the U.S House of Transportation Committee.
Listen to our last show explaining the dangers of the Denham Amendment and read more via OOIDA's Fighting for Truckers page.
We believe this attack on wages exploits new CDL drivers. Attorney Christina Humphrey is our guest who will discuss Section A and B of the provisions within the FAA Reauthorization Bill.

Shockingly, between 300,000-400,000 children are exploited commercially in our nation for purposes of sex each year, many of these children are being shipped, or trafficked, across international borders each year. For these thousands of children, a life of horror and danger is forced upon them as they serve as prostitutes for local and global organizations. Children who fall victim to the sexual exploitation of human trafficking tend to come from several different backgrounds. They may be runaways, victims of prior sexual abuse; homeless; children looking to belong, hoping to find acceptance and love. Dr. John DeGarmo, expert in foster care expalins how our National SuperBowl weekend has the highest rate of child sex trafficking per year. http://drjohndegarmofostercare.weebly.com
